Morelos would be a huge loss to Rangers if he were to leave this summer. The Colombia U20 international was Rangers’s top goalscorer last season with 18 goals in all competitions.

The Yellow Canaries do have to navigate past a tricky playoff round if they hope to make the group stage.

The Istanbul based outfit have made landing a new striker a priority before the start of the playoff round.
